I am best known as a designer of hand dyed silk scarves with unique patterns created by shibori techniques, but I also paint in other mediums including batik, oil and cold wax, pastel, watercolour and ink. I often work with mixed media; for example by liquifying pastel over loosely applied watercolour or by incorporating transfer printed images for a layered effect.

I am inspired by colour and light in landscapes and nature that I experience while walking in my locality and in North Wales. I sketch and paint then interpret my ideas back in my studio. Much of my art is representational or semi-abstract in style but sometimes an experimental approach leads to work that emerges from memory and imagination.
